's not connected to sequester, and nor does it mean those teachers are losing their job. and we just spoke to diane young, and she also said what the secretary said is not on point. it's not really clear nor is it accurate. what she said is they're waiting on word from the federal authorities about head start money, which may or may not be part of this whole equation, and they haven't heard from the federal government, so they may, in fact, have to get rid of some teachers, simply because they're not hearing from the federal government about a routine matter, routine financing for their district, so they have to plan and that's the only thing they can do right now. we'll have to find out more from that district and others about when, how, and if these forced budget cuts are going to effect them. but the indication right now is from the department of education, that they don't really seem to know, or at least they haven't been able to point out a clear, clear example of what the secretary was claiming today. wolf? >> tom, thanks very much for that explanation. in these battles that are underway, ove

was at least partly -- dian rinehart, congressional research. user the nuclear test was at least partly designed to sort of break this possibility of inter-korean under madam president park. but it seems to me that it's more of sort of a drawback if anything. and i'm curious to see if you don't how you would explain that, why you would want to sort of throw a wrench in the possible trust policy that she's talked about. you know, what does north korea gain by basically foreclosing any possibility of engagement for the near-term? >> well, if we understood why north korea makes provocations, we would be better off understanding why they would take these actions, antithetical to their interests. the reality i think is that park geun-hye at all ready been using friends to reach out to the north korean government, and to let them know publicly as well that a summit meeting would be asked for in 2013, sometime this year, and clearly she campaigned on the idea of a more balanced approach to north korea. that is, as well as having to do with the security threats. but something more measured than
